Marina City - "The Rise And Fall Of You"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

"Marina City is THE Chicago band to watch out for.”* Fusing the aggressive instrumentals found in hard rock with the catchy vocal melodies and harmonies found in top 40 pop, Marina City has set out to create something that has never been heard before. Classifying the genre as Aggressive Pop-Rock, the quintet has released 2 Eps, toured heavily from the Midwest to the East Coast, and has shared the stage with well known and established acts such as Go Radio, Amanda Palmer, State Champs, Cartel, and Real Friends. Since debuting at a sold out House of Blues show, Marina City has taken a strictly DIY approach to their booking and management,. This year their newest EP (Chimera) and the music video for their first single (“The Lost Boys”) was exclusively premiered on AbsolutePunk.net, featured on Pup Fresh, and Property of Zack.

Relying on “poignant lyrics, three-part harmonies, and one hell of a drummer”** the band features lead vocalist Ryan Argast, guitarist and vocalist Brian Johnson, keyboardist and vocalist Matt Gaudiano, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea, and bassist Aaron Heiy. In 2012 the band ventured away from being a solo act behind singer Ryan Argast and become more of a collaborative group walking away from a production deal in the process. With a degree in music performance, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea creates a strong rhythmic backbone for bassist Aaron Heiy’s deep pocket to groove over. Hammond artist Matthew Gaudiano on keys teams up with guitarist Brian Johnson to create the hard-hitting and aggressive center of the band. However, the biggest standout factor for Marina City is that it features 3 lead vocalists. Gaudiano’s smooth R&B style and Johnson’s raw punk sound compliment the power and emotion of frontman Ryan Argast. Said Chris Triebes owner and talent buyer of Mojoes In Joliet, IL "Marina City puts on one of the most energetic & passionate live shows I have seen from a local-area band in a long time"

When All Else Fails' New Video & Single “Agree to Disagree” Wins the War for Your Heart

NYC’s When All Else Fails wear their hearts on their sleeves while dishing out their emotional brand of extreme music. The band’s first single “Agree to Disagree” is a raging, anthemic slab of heavy, metallic hardcore. Powerful and lyrical, it is a pointed introduction to the band’s philosophy of destroying life’s sometimes overwhelming obstacles. The band recently shot a music video for the new single, filmed and directed by Tony Hanson of Fenix Studios. BlankTV has the exclusive premiere on their YouTube channel!

Breaking down barriers is something vocalist Rich Canci has been fighting for almost every day of his 23 years on this planet. A 5-time cancer survivor and amputee, Canci’s single-minded drive manifests itself in his charity work and live event promotions, all while finding time to tend bar and graduate from nursing school. This seeming one-man army doesn’t do all the heavy lifting in When All Else Fails, though. Alongside Rich is Samantha Pietrunti, whose clean vocal work provides a lush counterpoint to Canci’s hardcore vocal delivery. Couple their voices with the melodic leads of guitarist James Kenny and the driving rhythmic backbone of Matt Shake (guitar), Ed Mone (bass), and James Aquaredda (drums) and you’ve got the recipe for your new favorite band.

When All Else Fails is working hard to claim that title. They are currently in the studio recording Stepping Stones, their debut EP, which will undoubtedly catapult them out of the tri-state bubble and put them on the map for listeners all over the world to hear. As the first single from Stepping Stones, “Agree to Disagree” is an incredible first volley in this campaign for world dominance.

Okay, the band demands that you stop reading and start listening. Immerse yourself in their world...

The Sharp Lads - "St. Marks Hotel"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

The Sharp Lads Impossible riffs. Obscene showmanship. An ass-groovin’ rhythm section. New punk songs with catchy melodies, the likes of which you never thought you’d hear again. The Sharp Lads released their debut album in the summer of 2011, and unleashed a campaign of live rock n’ roll shock and awe, unlike anything the world had ever witnessed before. And now they’re back!

Taking lessons learned on their home turf of NYC and on the road everywhere else they could, playing to crowds of sweaty loyalists and stunned new converts alike, with no concern for their own personal safety or worries about anything other than the moment, the Lads have emerged from their experiences with Death by Misadventure, their second album released Spring 2014.

Dave Tierney leads the charge with schizo vocals alternating between desperate screams and genre bending melodies. Rob Fudge shreds alien riffs that make you feel like your first time all over again while Kurt Wahlstrom holds down the bowel shaking bottom end playing a bass carved from a Jamaican treehouse. Driving the beat like a hell spawned hot rod with its brake lines cut, Steve Dios is blasting these songs with a frightening fury all the way to their grisly finish.

Surrender your sons and daughters. It’s already too late.

Imicus - "The Libertine"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Imicus After a two year hiatus, Imicus return to the fold in sensational style with a brand new single entitled ‘The Libertine’. Developing and solidifying a sound that draws together hook laden choruses and engaging riffs with thoughtful dynamics, Imicus are back stronger than ever, and with a new album poised for release next year, there is nothing stopping the band this time around.

Hailing from Luton, Imicus dropped their debut album ‘Animal Factory’ in 2010 through Transcend Records. It picked up widespread critical acclaim with Scuzz TV, BBC Radio 1, XFM and Totalrock, all of whom played tracks from the record; and the band were also asked by Metal Hammer to record a version of 'You Don't Have To Be Old To Be Wise' for a Judas Priest cover CD, which was given away with one of their issues. The melodic metallers also served their time on the road and relentlessly toured, playing with the likes of Enter Shikari, Skindred, InMe, SiKth, Ill Nino, Panic Cell, Reuben, Breed 77, The Deathstars, Exit Ten, Devil Sold His Soul, Orange Goblin, and many more; Imicus have also played a string of prominent festivals including Download, Bloodstock, Hammerfest, Hard Rock Hell and Bulldog Bash.

The original line up of Imicus disbanded in 2012 and the second incarnation of the band came to fruition at the start of 2013 when co-founder and front-man Miller decided to continue and re-invent the band. The newly reformed quintet have certainly delivered; the new material is a real statement of intent and defines the progression in the band’s writing and the new attitude featured on the forthcoming album. Under the expert supervision of Russ Russell, the new tracks showcase Imicus’ signature hooks and choruses while still maintaining dense instrumentation and enticing atmospherics. Whilst the material has continued to develop and promises to launch the riff monsters into the consciousness of new audiences, the band’s sound is still both melodic and heavy and is sure to appease original fans who revelled in their debut.
